Our vision is a world that values and affirms all LGBTIQ people as full citizens.

 

Our Mission

We will create a space for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people and organisations to work together, build bridges, and speak with a common voice, through a biennial national conference.

Our conference will be Indigenous and feminist in its approach, welcoming the voices of multicultural and faith groups, people with disabilities, the Deaf community, and people of all ages, genders, sexualities, geographical locations and family formations.

We will establish a platform for a new national LGBTIQ rights network.

OUR VALUES

 

CARE

We will operate within a culture of care, recognising that our diversity is our strength by ensuring we nurture one another and promote healing through our processes.

COLLABORATION

We will actively work to bring together the many communities within the LGBTIQ space, share knowledge and resources and build productive relationships.

RESPECT

We will treat every person with respect and acknowledge their story and their voice.

INTEGRITY

We will act always with honour to earn the respect of our communities, to whom we will be fully accountable.

Determination

We will bring to our activities the passion and courage that has been a hallmark of our LGBTIQ history, acting with resolve to achieve meaningful social change.

Pride

We will celebrate the magnificent cultural and political contribution of our movement, the achievements of those who have gone before, and the energy, spirit and enthusiasm of LGBTIQ pride.


We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands that we meet and work on. We wish to pay respect to their Elders — past, present and future — and acknowledge the important role all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within Australia.
